David Prutton’s Sky Bet Championship predictions | Football News

Who is David Prutton tipping for victory in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend? Find out here…

Luton vs Sheffield United, Friday 8pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Luton grabbed an important win last weekend. It was their first of the season after a slow start. It was never going to be easy to bounce back after the end of last season after all.

Sheffield United were also beaten play-off semi-finalists, but they have started very well and could extend their lead at the top of the table with a win on Friday night. I think they will do just that.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Sunderland vs Norwich, Saturday 12.30pm – Live on Sky Sports Football

Sunderland battled to a valuable win at Stoke last weekend to continue their very solid return to Championship football. Eight points from five games is a very good start for a newly-promoted side.

Norwich have enjoyed back-to-back Championship wins to get their campaign up and running, but I think they are going to come up short at the Stadium of Light. I just feel like the home side will edge this one.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Blackburn vs Stoke, Saturday 3pm

Blackburn’s early-season optimism has been swiftly quashed by back-to-back defeats. But they are still fourth in the table heading into the weekend and you are always going to have ups and downs in a season.

Stoke and former manager Michael O’Neil parted ways during the week. They have had a poor start to the season. Though it does seems strange not to give him a little more time after backing him again in the summer. I think the Potters may nick a win here.

Prutton predicts: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds)

Hull vs Coventry, Saturday 3pm

Hull’s unbeaten start to the season came to an almighty end at West Brom last weekend as they were thumped 5-2.

They will quickly want to get back on the horse here.

It’s hard to know where Coventry stand because so many of their games have been called off. But a bit of rustiness could play into Hull’s hands. Home win.

Prutton predicts: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds)

Middlesbrough vs Swansea, Saturday 3pm

Five games in and no wins yet for Middlesbrough. They are in the relegation zone and it does not take long for pressure to build at this level. You can be sure that Chris Wilder will be feeling the heat.

Swansea have also been pretty poor so far. They were expected to kick on this season, but it has not happened yet. I think this is where Boro will break their duck.

Prutton predicts: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds)

Millwall vs Reading, Saturday 3pm

Millwall were beaten pretty comfortably at Norwich last weekend, but they have always been pretty good under Gary Rowett at bouncing back after a poor result.

Reading have responded brilliantly from that thumping at Rotherham with two great wins on the spin. I think a draw here would also be a good result for the Royals.

Prutton predicts: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds)
